RealTech WiFi card shipped with S10-2 doesn't work in Linux and works poorly in WIndows. All large downloads hang in Windows. And I need Linux for work.
I ordered Atheros-based card. But when I replaced original card with new atheros card I get this message:
"Unauthorized Wireless network card is plugged in. Power off and remove it."
I never heard that anybody checks hardware to be authorized.
How to get rid of this message?

It seems to me that a conversation with Lenovo is in order, mentioning US Federal Trade Commission rules and European Union (EU) anti-trust rules.
I have just gotten this message when trying to upgrade my wireless LAN card to an Intel WiFi Link 1000 card.
So long as Lenovo provides mini-PCI slots, it is quite possibly a violation of competition laws for them to
deliberately restrict their use to "authorized" (i.e. Lenovo) peripherals.

Just got a 5100 card from a company called LaptopAid on EBay for $13.00 (shipped). It was new or as good as new and works like a champ on the S10-2 under Windows Home Premium.

Another card which doesn't work, unfortunately, is the Intel 5300AGN
This is too bad, because it's a nicer card than the 5100AGN, having facility for 3 antennas, a newer
draft-N version, and possibly better power management. (Like the Centrino-based 1000, which
also doesn't work.)
Never a problem with an ASUS netbook using same chipset.

I also have a mini-pciE card that I've purchased off of ebay that is N compliant.
I have aruba networking hardware in my home and I'd love to be able to take advantage of 802.11n, but the standard card in the s10-2 doesn't support it.
Is there a bios hack or something I can use?

NOT TESTED BY ME I DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY
ALL YOU CAN DO THESE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
All of the following is the usual research and not entail any benefits!
You do not want to install a 3G card Mini PCI-E card in its IdeaPad S10-2, get a BIOS error and offer to throw your card?
1. 1. BIOS download from Lenovo last (tested to 22m) native BIOS
2. 2. WINRAR to unpack the downloaded file
3. 3. WINRAR obtained at 1ACN22WW.EXE inciting WINRAR
4. 4. obtain the directory:
5. 5. Download the editor BIOS Insyde (google to help) - EZH2O (I used EZH20 220.127.116.11 for SW8/TW8)
6. 6. Delete existing module run exh2o.exe, open the file KIUN0113.ROM, components -> module -> Delete existing module
7. 7. Patch Looking 11D378C2-B472-412F-AD87-1BE4CD8B33A6, click Patch
8. 8. File -> Save, exit
9. 9. Start run InsydeFlash, Start
10. 10.reboot - and the happiness-happiness!!
PS If you "spoiled» BIOS:
1. 1. on a clean USB Flash Drive is formatted FAT16 or FAT32 file record KIUN0113.ROM, renaming it KIUN0.BIN
2. 2. disconnect power and remove the battery
3. 3. press and hold Fn + B
4. 4. Connect the power supply and press the power
5. 5. release Fn + B
6. 6. recovery process will begin to load the BIOS image in memory
7. 7. computer is beeping every 2 seconds - a process of flash BIOS
8. 8. computer shuts down automatically
9. 9. you have been saved
